Absolutely Agree! Veterans over Illegals!
On Thursday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin ripped the Obama administration for putting the needs of illegal immigrants ahead of veterans who sacrificed to ensure the nation’s freedoms.
At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Palin referred to the Veterans Administration’s wait-list scandal and said, “we can’t wait for D.C. to fix their bureaucratic blunders.”
Palin demanded that veterans get vouchers to get treatment outside of the VA.
“Give our vets the same freedoms they gave us,” she declared. “And instead of illegal aliens cutting in line and being rewarded with a handout of U.S. benefits, we demand that the vets are first in line.”
She blasted the “corrupt government” for putting veterans on secret waiting lists, deceiving Congress, and then spying on investigators who were trying to get to the bottom of the scandal.
“The bureaucracy is killing our vets,” Palin said, noting that the VA’s blunders have killed at least 500 veterans.
She also ripped the the media that “doesn’t cover lame-duck scandals anymore” for not digging more into the Veterans Administration wait-list scandal after VA Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned.
“The reason why you don’t hear about them is because our vets don’t whine,” she said. “They’re not wired to complain. That’s why this ran under the radar for so long.”
Palin said veterans reentering the civil workforce should be allowed to use the technical skills they learned without having to go through unnecessary and burdensome hoops to get certified. She mentioned that Congress cut veterans benefits last year in the budget compromise while not voting to cut their own and urged Congress to permanently secure the benefits of veterans.
Palin reminded the audience that when George Washington gathered his officers after the last British troops left the colonies, the father of the country, overcome with emotion, said, “with a heart full of love and gratitude I now take leave of you. I most devoutly wish that your latter days may be as prosperous and happy as your former ones have been glorious and honorable.”
After saying that Washington’s wish for our first veterans should be our wish for every veteran that has followed, Palin asked whether America has lived up to Washington’s wish for America’s veterans. Palin said she was asking not as a politician but as a mother of a combat veteran. She addressed the post-traumatic stress veterans suffer and the high suicide rates among veterans–she said 92 veterans will have committed suicide by the time CPAC concludes–and blasted politicians who “squander precious lives” abroad and then “callously” refuse to respect and repay veterans who are coming back “broken” in “body and spirit.”
“Our vets deserve better and we demand better,” Palin said, noting that today’s troops are deployed for much longer than previous soldiers.
No, No, No!! What say you???
PM on eve of Washington trip says strength of US-Israeli relations will prevail over current disagreements.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu paid a visit to the Western Wall Saturday night, just hours before flying to Washington on one of the the most contentious visits there by an Israeli prime minister in recent memory.
With the Wall as his backdrop, Netanyahu said that he wanted to visit Judaism's holiest site before embarking on his trip Sunday morning to Washington where his scheduled speech before Congress on Tuesday has placed him at loggerheads with the White House.
“I want to take this opportunity to say that I respect US President Barack Obama,” he stressed. “I believe in the strength of the relationship between Israel and the US and in their strength to overcome differences of opinion, those that have been and those that will yet be. ” Netanyahu reiterated his position that as Israel's prime minister it was his obligation to worry about Israel's security, “and for that reason we strongly opposed the agreement being formulated between the world powers and Iran that could endanger Israel's very existence.”
This is the first time since he became prime minister for the second time in 2009 that Netanyahu visited the Wall before embarking on a trip to the United States. This followed a visit he made to his father's grave two days ago in Jerusalem. His father, Netanyahu explained to the haredi radio station Kol B'rama on Friday, always gave him advice at critical junctures in his life.
“He said to always look at the threats endangering our people,” Netanyahu said of his father, Benzion, a noted historian who passed away in 2012. “He said that one of the things that was lacking in Jewish history was seeing in real time what endangers our existence.” The obligation incumbent on Israel's leaders, Netanyahu said, is to identify the dangers in time and do everything they can to scuttle them.
“My responsibility is to worry not only about the State of Israel, but also the future of the Jewish people,” he said, “to stand up and raise our voice. Seventy, eighty years ago no one could raise their voice when there were plans to destroy us. Today there is, and it is my obligation.”
In the interview Netanyahu pointed to former prime minister David Ben-Gurion, Levi Eshkol, and Menachem Begin as leaders who during their tenures took action they felt was necessary even though it ran contrary to strongly-stated US policies.
“When there is something that is connected to our very existence, what do they expect the prime minister to, bow his head and accept something that is dangerous in order to have good relations?” he asked. “I think the relations are strong enough to overcome the disagreements, and that Iran with an atomic bomb is much more dangerous than one disagreement or another [with the US].”
Government officials said that work on the speech to Congress will continue until it is delivered at 11 a.m. Tuesday morning. The officials said that Netanyahu genuinely believes this is a historic moment, and that in the best case scenario the speech could compel “policy makers to rethink concessions that they are willing to make to the Iranians.”
Netanyahu is scheduled to arrive in Washington Sunday afternoon, and deliver a speech to AIPAC’s annual policy conference Monday morning that will focus on the strength of the US-Israel relationship. He is scheduled to have lunch with a bipartisan group of Congressional leaders on Tuesday afternoon after delivering his address to Congress, and then fly back to Israel, arriving a few hours before the onset of Purim.
In his interview on Friday he noted the timing, saying that just as Jews on Purim remember the attempt in Persia in antiquity to destroy the Jews, “it is the same Persia with a regime that is waving the banner of destroying the state of the Jews. The means by which they intend on implementing this threat is with many atomic bombs.”
Netanyahu will be accompanied to Washington by ambassador to the US Ron Dermer, who was in Jerusalem last week helping him prepare for the trip, his top advisors, and his wife, Sarah.
If you have seen the stories around the globe of how cartoonists, journalists and people simply posting tweets or Facebook posts has gotten them in hot water with Islam and even the government, then you have probably said, "That can't happen in America," right? Well hold on to your seat my friend because you are in for a rude awakening.

Barack Obama's Attorney for the Eastern district of Tennessee Bill Killian and Kenneth Moore, special agent in charge of the FBI's Knoxville Division, want Americans to know that if you say something negative towards Islam or Muslims, the Federal government may imprison you. They will be having an event called "Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society" on June 4, the same day Obama is scheduled to sign the United Nations Small Arms Treaty.
The Tullahoma Times reports,
Killian and Moore will provide input on how civil rights can be violated by those who post inflammatory documents targeted at Muslims on social media.
"This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion," Killian told The News Monday. "This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are."
Killian said the presentation will also focus on Muslim culture and how, that although terrorist acts have been committed by some in the faith, they are no different from those in other religions.
Killian also wants to portray Oklahoma City Bomber Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols as Christians and then link them to terrorism in the same fashion as Islamic jihadists. Please, the entire Christian community came out against the actions of the OKC bombing and neither of these guys were Christians, nor were they following the teachings of the Bible. The Islamic community has yet to condemn terrorism and the Qur'an clearly teaches them to commit violence (See video above). They hide behind certain words to mask the terrorism they are to engage in via the Qur'an. Instead, the Qur'an teaches them to actively engage in jihad. For a thorough dealing with jihad and its historical meaning and understanding, I highly recommend Lebanon-born Walid Phares' book Future Jihad: Terrorist Strategies Against America. That will help you see clearly that nothing has changed in nearly 1,500 years of Islamic history.
However, the criminal Attorney General Eric Holder seems to be backing Killian and Moore. Judicial Watch reports,
In its latest effort to protect followers of Islam in the U.S. the Obama Justice Department warns against using social media to spread information considered inflammatory against Muslims, threatening that it could constitute a violation of civil rights.
The move comes a few years after the administration became the first in history to dispatch a U.S. Attorney General to personally reassure Muslims that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is dedicated to protecting them. In the unprecedented event, Attorney General Eric Holder assured a San Francisco-based organization (Muslim Advocates) that urges members not to cooperate in federal terrorism investigations that the "us versus them" environment created by the U.S. government, law enforcement agents and fellow citizens is unacceptable and inconsistent with what America is all about.
"Muslims and Arab Americans have helped build and strengthen our nation," Holder said after expressing that he is "grateful" to have Muslims as a partner in promoting tolerance, ensuring public safety and protecting civil rights. He also vowed to strengthen "crucial dialogue" between Muslim and Arab-American communities and law enforcement.
SignIslamFreeSpeechWesternTerrorismThe DOJ actually became the first to assure Muslims it is dedicated to protecting them. I don't recall this administration doing the same thing for Christians who are constantly having inflammatory videos and posts put up by Muslims.
Second, Muslims and Arab Americans have "helped build and strengthen our nation"? While I grant there are many Arab Americans who have come here legally, integrated with our society and lived among us and have contributed greatly to the society, I can't give a full stamp of approval that we have been strengthened by Muslims. In fact, I would say we have been weakened by Muslim influence, specifically I'm talking about those currently in the Obama administration and the infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Additionally the Tullahoma Times indicated that the goal is to increase awareness and understanding that American Muslims are not the terrorists some have made them out to be in social media and other circles. While I grant that every person who calls themselves a Muslim is not engaged in terrorism, the reality is that because of the teachings of the Qur'an, you cannot trust what they say, but respond to what they do. Virtually all Muslim mosques in America are funded by Saudi Arabia or other Muslim countries. Virtually all of them also, in turn, fund the Islamic Society of North America, which aligns itself with the Brady campaign to attack the Second Amendment. Additionally these Muslim groups are doing just as the Obama DOJ is doing and that is to go after the First Amendment.
Killian said, "We want to inform everybody about what the law is, but more importantly, we want to provide what the law means to Muslims, Hindus and every other religion in the country. It's why we came here in the first place. In England, they were using Christianity to further their power in government. That's why the First Amendment is there."
let's get this straight, the First Amendment is there to protect Islamists in their speech, but not Christians? I see clearly now. Killian clearly doesn't understand that whole part about "Congress shall make no law" regarding not only the establishment of a religion, but also "impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press" among other things. This means his claim about federal law in this matter is completely unconstitutional and he should be removed from his office.
You'll recall back in August 2012 that Assistant Attorney General of the DOJ Civil Rights Division Thomas Perez refused to affirm the First Amendment rights of Americans to speak out against other religions. He was questioned four times and all he did was beat around the bush. This is the creeping Sharia that we and many others are warning about.
One wonders just how long it will be until we will be forced to defend our freedom of speech with our freedom to keep and bear arms from Islam and its co-conspirators in government.
Finally, I often hear the famous quotation from Voltaire, "To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize." Well, for those posting this claiming that this should be applied to Christians or Jews, I suggest you take a second look and see who is bringing the hammer down now.
The Obama administration, which is launching a series of Muslim Outreach Summits so that Islamists can tell federal officials how they better can serve that community, says it also is holding educational outreaches to let people know that Internet postings that violate civil rights are subject to federal prosecution.
Anyone see this as inflammatory?
Are they doing this for Christians? I think not. This leads to the question of why the Obama administration thinks it needs to hear from the Muslim community on how it can better serve them, rather than simply follow the law.
But the law, at least Constitutional law, is not in this administration's vocabulary as evidenced by the numerous violations of the Constitution and the various scandals it is embroiled in.

Greetings "Sisters & Brothers"!
I am posting this story for our members to grasp the magnitude in which this president has willfully decided to overlook the American Constitution to do exactly what he wishes! I personally believe this will not stop until the American citizens decide they have finally absorbed enough of his corruption, immorality and disregard for our wishes and The Rule Of Law!
One last point dear friends I feel I have a duty to share with all of you. In my very heart and soul Jesus has shown me and others within His ministry "We The People" have within our grasp the power and strength to finally put a stop to the sheer tyranny and yes, the betrayal of this Republic and its precious values! He has made it crystal clear that what has been and indeed is still lacking is the "Will" to carry out the measures required to turn our "Ship Of State" around and steer for safe harbors. I earnestly beg each of you to search your hearts and souls to see "IF" this "Will" is within you just as it was in our Founders and forefathers for we may be called upon to exercise our God-given rights to regain that power which was awarded us by Almighty God Himself through "Divine Intervention". His Will be done.
I am also including a posting from another Tea Party Website that just arrived for your viewing as well to see the thoughts of other Patriots across this nation. I think it will give grave concern to everyone who reads its words and grasps its meaning. These are indeed dark and trying times filled with the collection of mankind's evil and Satan's direction BUT as followers of the Judeo-Christian faith we are assured of God's victory over these forces! Amen
May he peace of the Lord be with you, Amen
Dear "Sisters & Brothers";
We hope you will enjoy this human interest story as we have! It offers even more evidence that American's are indeed "Exceptional" in every way and should never be counted out when things begin to get tough! Please offer your thoughts as time allows!
Peace be with you, Amen
